the target store and the cheap hotel

I'm out on the road again and am overnighting in a cheap hotel. It's actually a nice hotel. A little trick I use is that if staying in economy class, see if the place has a slightly more expensive room than what is offered at the rock bottom price. Sometimes they are called "executive", "business", "superior king", or the like. For as little as 3, 4, or 5 dollars more, you can end up in a less frequently used and nicely appointed room and still stay in the economy range.

Anyway, across the street is a Target store. I would love to walk over there, but between here and there is a 6-lane no-mans-land highway. So, to go to a store that is a couple of hundred yards away, I have to fire up a roaring diesel truck, make a right, floor it up to highway speed, then slam on the brakes to make a left nearly half a mile away.

There may as well be concertina wire, an electric fence, and land mines between here and the store. So much for talking a walk over there.

  3. Guess the Target store lost your business while in their town…

  4. As I was grousing about being on the wrong side of warp-drive highway, I remembered all the times I have enjoyed blowing through this town when not staying here.
